Texas Wesleyan has been a part of my life since I was born, my parents, and many other family members have graduated from there and I have family that has worked at Texas Wesleyan for many years. I have been on campus more times than i can possibly count over the years, and was glad to be given the opportunity to continue my education here. The one thing different about Wesleyan than the other schools I was accepted to, and one of the main reasons I chose Wesleyan was because of their ability to improve all aspects of the life for the students. Wesleyan is constantly updating, renovating and transforming all parts of the campus from the dorms, the sub, to new fitness areas and a new football stadium. Wesleyan has always offered one of the strongest athletic departments for a private school- They inspired the football team of the 1941-1942 school year to enlist together the day after the tragedy of pearl harbor, after winning the co-championship title. Texas Wesleyan University has coached its students the power of responsibility, integrity and the determination to succeed. After 75 years the Texas Wesleyan varsity football team made national news for being reinstated and had a record of over 200 students try out, we have olympic champions going to RIO 2016 for Table tennis, and many more championship and award winning titles through all of our sports programs such as baseball, softball. golf and tennis. As a student at Texas Wesleyan University, I can say with confidence that our school, though small, has such support for our athletic department and all other clubs/activities on campus. I am glad to be a Texas Wesleyan Ram and I cannot imagine what we new championship titles that we will hold in the future!

The professors here make this university what it is. They are helpful, and they care about each and every student they have. The fact that this university is a lot smaller than most, makes it feel like a family. While walking around campus, you can smile and wave at anyone, and they will do the same to you. You share classes with at least one or two people. Everyone knows everyone, and it makes things a lot more fun and a lot less stressful on new students! If I could, I would stay at Texas Wesleyan forever. The atmosphere is very welcoming, and there is not one person who will turn you away if you need help!

Texas Wesleyan's Greek life through fraternities and sororities have been major parts of campus life, these associations have provided safe, fun and helpful chances for companionship and community involvement for Fort Worth. Texas Wesleyan as a private university holds pride in their different activities such as greek life. The applications are tediously reviewed, and the various greek life fraternities and sororities incorporate many aspects through choosing new candidates: community service, leadership, pride as well as respect and responsibility. Students of greek life are given the opportunity to make life long friendships, contribute to rebuilding the communities which surround us and allow them to be a life long member of great associations built on respect and leadership. While greek life is open to all to apply, only the best will be accepted. Greek life pushes you to be the very best person you can be at Texas Wesleyan University.
